Marlena: [Grunting]

Chad: [Gasps] Marlena. Marlena, Marlena...

Marlena: [Gasps]

Chad: Marlena, Marlena. Come on, hey, come on.

Marlena: [Groans] [Screams]

Chad: Hey...

Marlena: You...

Chad: Huh? Wh--

Clyde: Oh, my--

Jennifer: Oh! Clyde, God, I'm so sorry.

Clyde: Jennifer? Don't be sorry, I'm the one who ran into you.

Jennifer: No, no, it's fine. Are you okay? You seem a little...

Clyde: Winded?

Jennifer: Out of breath. Yeah.

Clyde: Yeah, wheezy? Don't tell Ben, but I've been power walking. You know, trying to take off a pound or two before the wedding.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah, right.

Clyde: But, uh, you probably thought I was running from police or something, huh?

Jennifer: Uh, no. Of course not.

Clyde: Hey, I'm glad I ran into you. You got a minute?

Jennifer: No, actually. I was heading to work, I real--

Clyde: Listen, it'll just take a minute. I got something I wanna show you. Talk to you about.

Jennifer: Okay.

Clyde: Listen. I always used to make fun of people for staring into these things all the time, and, you know, now I'm--do the same thing. [Laughs] Never thought I'd have a folder entitled "wedding venues," though, you know.

Jennifer: Wedding venues?

Clyde: Yeah, it's amazing what you can find out online. Here, here's the one. What do you think of that?

Jennifer: Mr. Weston...

Clyde: Clyde, please.

Jennifer: Clyde... I think it would be best if we let Abigail and Ben decide where they wanna get married.

Clyde: Well, you know, I know Abigail's got a good head on her shoulders and, uh, I wish I could say the same thing about Ben, but the fact is they're both still kids. You know? And kids don't always make the best decisions.

Abigail: This is just a misunderstanding.

Ben: No, no, no.

Abigail: Yes, it is.

Ben: It's a lot more than a misunderstanding, Abigail.

Abigail: No, Ben--

Ben: This is you-- this is you breaking your promise to me to stay away from this bastard. And now you expect me to make you my wife? When you lie so easily? Why would I do that? I wanted to do this a while ago, but I made something for you.

Abigail: You ma--okay. What? Wh--you made this? My God, it's beautiful! I didn't know you could do this. I mean, most of the time, Chad, you are trying so hard to do anything you can to get us together, and now I'm here and it feels like you're trying to get rid of me.

Chad: Abby, I am not trying to get rid of you. That is the last thing that I wanna do.

Chad: Hey, it's okay. It's okay, it's over. It's over.


Chad: No, it wasn't me. It wasn't me, there was somebody else here. Marlena...Marlena.

Marlena: Don't touch me.

Chad: Shh. It's okay. It's okay. Hey. Hey. Hey. No, no, no. No. Oh...hey. Hey. Hey.

Rafe: Yeah, I'm at the hospital. I'm gonna follow up with Marlena again. See if she has any thoughts on what kind of sicko killed Serena mason and... Paige Larson.

[Phone beeps]

Rafe: Son of a-- oh, thank God. This is detective Hernandez, I'm in Marlena Evans' office. She's been attacked. We need medical assistance right away. We need help in here!

Jennifer: I thought that you had more faith in your son than to question his decisions.

Clyde: No, no, no. Don't get me wrong, I think that asking Abigail to marry him was the best move that Ben ever made.

Jennifer: Right, right. And so now they're gonna get married, and they're gonna be starting their lives together. And they're gonna be making decisions, decisions a lot more important than where they're going to get married. And we, as parents, we just need to back off.

Clyde: Yeah, but you got a real advantage over me on that. You know, you have been a great, hands-on mom from the very beginning for your kids. And I got a lot of time to make up for.

Jennifer: Okay, and I can understand that, but I just feel like--

Clyde: I see this wedding as something that Ben and I can go through together, you know? And I have a lot of business contacts, so I can save 'em money on flowers and catering and all that stuff. And that business is such a racket, they can see a naive kid like Ben coming from a mile--

Jennifer: I just think you need to stop going on and on about this wedding, 'cause you might not even be there.

Ben: You look surprised to see me. I do live here, you know?

Abigail: Of course I know.

Ben: Then why are you still here? What were you just doing?

Abigail: I was just a million miles away.

Ben: You spend a lot of time there.

Abigail: [Sighs] I was looking at this. And I was thinking about how much I appreciated the fact that you made this for me.

Ben: Yeah, well, it wasn't anything fancy or expensive, but--

Abigail: Ben.

Ben: I guess I'm glad you still like it.

Abigail: I love it. Ben, I love you.

Ben: You know, like I said before, you're still here. Did you forget the part where I broke off our engagement?

Abigail: I just told you what I was still doing here, Ben. I'm here because I love you. And I have to get you to understand that what you think you saw between Chad and me... Ben, you're overreacting.

Ben: [Scoffs] I kinda love how it's always my fault.

Abigail: I-I didn't say that, Ben. I don't even think that.

Ben: No, but you do think that when I walk in and I find you alone with a guy that means nothing to you, alone in a hospital room, and he's touching your face... you think that if I'm not just fine with that, I'm overreacting.

Abigail: Ben... you saw exactly what you were looking for.

Ben: He was-- he was touching you.

Abigail: Yes. Yeah, he was.

Ben: Yeah.

Abigail: And yes, Chad and I have history. And yes, I don't treat him like an enemy.

Ben: Well, see the situation, Abigail, is that he keeps hitting on you, and you don't make him stop.

Abigail: Ben, don't you think that me marrying you is kind of sending a message that he's not the one I want? I have to get you to see that he is not your rival. Ben, he is not a threat to you. I love you. I wanna marry you. I wanna raise our child together. And Chad...Chad can't keep that from happening. But you could.

Ben: [Sighs] You know that is what I want more than anything in the world.

Abigail: I know--I mean, I think--I think I know. I just, I think that you... you get in your own way.

Ben: Then let's fix this now. Right now, I think there's a way--only one way to have it the way you just imagined our future would be. Come away with me tonight. And we'll leave Salem for good.

[Dramatic music]

John: Daniel, how is she?

Daniel: All right, she's fine, but you need to keep it down in here. Pressure on her carotid artery caused her to lose consciousness. When she fell, she hit her head. Now, we're gonna determine if she has a concussion, but she's gonna make a full recovery. She's gonna have a hell of a headache and a pretty sore throat, but she is going to be fine.

John: And I'm gonna kill the son of a bitch.

Daniel: Oh, I'll help you.

John: Hey, did you hear him, doc? He said you're gonna be just fine. You're gonna be fine, honey.

Rafe: Is that right? She gonna be fine?

Daniel: Oh, I wouldn't have bet on it, if you hadn't shown up. The ligature marks on her neck were just... in her office, in this hospital?

Rafe: Yeah.

Daniel: Guy's clearly crazy.

Rafe: Well, we got a team searching every square inch of this place, but so far, no sign of him. There was, however, this.

Daniel: Surprise, surprise.

Rafe: Yeah. Guy's having fun, left his calling card.

John: Hey, Daniel, she's coming around.

Daniel: Okay, okay. Excuse me. Hey, hey.

Marlena: John?

John: I'm right here. I'm right here.

Daniel: You know the drill. Who is the president?

Marlena: Barack Obama.

Daniel: And how old are you?

Marlena: [Sighs] Nice try.

Daniel: She's back. Thank God.

Marlena: John...

John: I'm right here. I'm right here. I'm right here.

Marlena: I saw him. It was Chad.

The humble potato.

Rafe: John...

John: I'm gonna kill him, Rafe. I'm gonna kill that--

Rafe: No, john, no you are not. You're not. That's not gonna happen because if you stop and actually think for a second, you're gonna realize that Marlena needs you, and not in jail on some battery charge, okay? Listen to me, listen. If it's him, I am gonna get him.

John: "If it's him"? Did you say "if"? Marlena doesn't lie.

Rafe: No, no, I know. What I meant is that I'm gonna prove that it's him and I'm gonna put him away for life. Okay?

John: He was in her office. Do you know why? Because she was helping him.

Rafe: Yeah.

John: She was meeting with him. She was hypnotizing him to try to give him a little peace of mind. And the son of a bitch was playing her.

Rafe: Yeah.

John: Ah, those poor girls.

Rafe: I know, john.

John: So, see, I can't just sit here. I gotta do something.

Rafe: Okay, you wanna do something? Be with her.

John: I can't do anything for her, but I sure as hell can go catch that animal.

Rafe: No, john, listen to me. Listen, you know what's at stake here. This has to be done by the book. Now, I understand that you want to tear him limb from limb, but I am gonna prove that it's him and that way, he is the one doing time, not you.

Clyde: Why the hell would you think I wouldn't be there for my son's wedding?

Jennifer: I was just thinking, maybe the way you're trying to take over the whole thing, I mean, what if they decide to elope?

Clyde: They're not gonna elope. You're pulling my leg, aren't you? [Laughs]

Jennifer: I mean, maybe a little, but...

Clyde: Yeah, that's your gentle way of telling me I'm overstepping, right?

Jennifer: Look, Clyde, I understand it. My only daughter is getting married, and I want it to be perfect too. But I also know my daughter. She has a really sweet side, and she is really sweet, but she also has a real spine. And this is her and Ben's wedding. You and I, we're supporters, that's it. That's all of our part in all of it.

Clyde: Seems like you got quite a spine yourself.

Jennifer: I am what you call a protective mother.

Clyde: Then I better watch my step. Listen, I've said before, I got a lot to make up for with my kids, and I do get carried away, but, you know, things just have a way of unraveling. I seem to be the only one who can make things right.

Jennifer: You think you are, Clyde.

Clyde: Yeah, I do. But a lot of the time, I am right. You're quite a remarkable woman. I look forward to a closer relationship once the kids are married.

Abigail: Why? Why do you wanna leave Salem?

Ben: Isn't it obvious?

Abigail: Because of Chad. It's not just because of Chad, though, is it, Ben? What do you think's gonna happen? We're gonna move away and then all of a sudden you're not gonna be jealous and monitor my calls?

Ben: No, Abigail, because if you leave with me it'll prove that you love me. That you'd be putting me and our baby over Chad.

Abigail: I have, Ben. I have. And you just won't accept it. All right, yeah, let's do it. I'll leave with you. I'll go anywhere you wanna go.

Ben: Abigail...

Abigail: But not tonight. Ben, my family, I can't just leave my brother and my mother without saying good-bye.

Ben: No, I--

Abigail: I couldn't forgive myself if I did that.

Ben: Tomorrow then.

Abigail: All right. Tomorrow.

Ben: [Sighs]

[Police sirens]

Daniel: You have head trauma. You're weak and we need to keep an eye on you. At the very minimum, you are gonna spend the night. Rafe posted cops outside and if you think for a minute that john's not gonna be like a sentry the whole time you're in here, think again.

Marlena: He--he'll go after Chad.

Daniel: Well, maybe you're right. But I am here. The cops are here and everyone on this floor knows and loves you. You are safe right here, Marlena. Safer than you would be at home.

Marlena: Okay. I'll stay.

Daniel: I don't really think you have a say in the matter.

Marlena: On one condition.

Rafe: There's a swat team on the way to the DiMera mansion. There's an APB out on the guy, and the state troopers have already set up roadblocks, okay? Listen, the only place that Chad DiMera is going is to prison, do you hear me?

John: Come on, Rafe. DiMera's learn escape routes with their ABCs. Now, I know you're doing your best, but you can't stop me.

Rafe: Okay. Okay, that's great, macho man, go rogue, okay, do that. Do you understand the defense attorney's gonna have a field day with this one? Your relationship with him, your job, your background with Marlena. You are one big fat liability. And if you so much as lay a finger on that punk, do you--

John: All right, okay. We'll do it your way. We'll do it by the book. But we're gonna do it together.

Jennifer: Hello?

Abigail: Hi, mom. It's just me.

Jennifer: Oh.

Abigail: What's wrong?

Jennifer: Honey. Uh, nothing.

Abigail: Mom, don't do that.

Jennifer: No, I just--I didn't think there would be anybody home, that's all. See, I'm already getting used to you abandoning me. Ooh, what can I get you? You need something?

Abigail: No, um... can we just talk for a second?

Jennifer: Of course, honey. What is it?

Abigail: I'm so sorry, mom.

Jennifer: Honey, what?

Abigail: Ben and I have decided to... leave town tomorrow.

Jennifer: What?

Abigail: I know that this is really out of the blue.

Jennifer: Yeah, we--out of the blue? Honey, we're planning a wedding. You're getting ready to have a baby. You can't just leave town tomorrow.

Abigail: It happened really fast.

Jennifer: I mean, whose decision was this?

Abigail: It was a mutual decision.

Jennifer: Right, which explains why you're so upbeat and happy about this.

Abigail: Please, mom, just-- this isn't easy for me, but I just--I want you--I need you to know that that this is what I want.

Ben: Hey.

Clyde: Hey.

Ben: What's going on?

Clyde: Just checking up on you. How are you doing?

Ben: I'm fine. I'm great.

Clyde: Yeah? Good to hear. Been talking to Abigail's mom.

Ben: What? Why?

Clyde: I just ran into her and she's in some kind of mood, telling me I'm butting in on your life and trying to take over the wedding and... what the hell is that?

Ben: It's a suitcase.

Clyde: Don't get smart with me. What's going on?

Ben: Abigail and I are leaving.

Clyde: You mean you're moving. The house isn't ready yet.

Ben: I mean we're leaving Salem. We don't wanna live here. I mean, we really appreciate you buying the house, of course, and everything you've done for us, but we just think if we're gonna make it as a couple, as a family, we have to start out on our own.

Clyde: Well, guess what? You're not going anywhere.

Jennifer: Has something happened? Are you and Ben afraid of something?

Abigail: Mom, I don't wanna shut you out. It's just... it's just so personal. And with everything that's happening, it's happening so fast, and with Chad around. We just need some time just us, you know, just some time for just us before the baby comes.

Jennifer: Yeah, I mean I... I guess I can understand that.

Abigail: Mom, I want you to know that this has nothing to do with you or JJ. Me leaving, it's not because I want to get away, at all.

Jennifer: No, I know, I know. But it is personal. It is between you and Ben, and I will always respect that. Hey, you know your dad and I, we had to fight. [Laughs] Histories, families... so, maybe this is a good thing for the two of you to just go off together to a desert island. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

Abigail: My God, mom, it's gonna kill me to leave you and JJ.

Jennifer: Mm, but, listen, you know, there's these things-- they're called phones and planes and...

[Both laugh]

Jennifer: You need to go and take care of you and Ben and your baby. And you don't give us a second thought.

Abigail: God, you know, I know everyone says this, but I really do have the best mom in the world.

Jennifer: Well, I mean, yeah. I know that's true.

[Both laugh]

Jennifer: Oh, baby.

Abigail: I promise I'll say good-bye to JJ before I leave.

Jennifer: Okay, great, yeah. And you give Ben my love, really.

Abigail: I will.

Jennifer: [Cries] Oh, keep her safe. Please, God, keep my kid safe.

Ben: I don't follow orders. You didn't buy me when you bought the house.

Clyde: Damn it, I'm doing this all wrong. I'm doing exactly what that woman told me not to do. Ben, I'm sorry, if I sound like I'm trying to take control or anything, you know. I'm thinking about you. I'm thinking about you and Abigail. You can't tell me that you're not leaving 'cause of Chad DiMera. And if you do, if you go, he will follow you.

Ben: Then I'll kill him.

Clyde: No, I don't mean follow you physically. I mean he will haunt you. He will get in your head. He'll be hanging over every moment you spend with Abigail. You gotta stay here. Watch that little bastard go down in flames.

Abigail: What're you doing?

Chad: Getting rid of the phone I used to text you.

Abigail: Okay, now, I'm really freaked out, Chad.

Chad: No, look, this is only gonna take a second. I just needed to tell you face-to-face, I am not the killer.

Abigail: I-I know that.

Chad: No, you don't. And for a while, neither did I. Abby, I'm starting to remember. I got so drunk that night with Serena, and then I-I came here. I got into a fight with another drunk, all right? It wasn't me.

Abigail: Chad, if you remember that you got into a fight here than that means that you have an alibi. You have to tell the police this because--

Chad: I don't know anything about the guy. Abby, tonight... I went to see Marlena, and someone was strangling her.

Abigail: My God...

Chad: No, it's okay, I stopped them in time. I think she's gonna be okay, but the problem is that she thinks that I was the one doing it.

Abigail: You were just--you were trying to help.

Chad: Oh, okay, so, here are my alibis: I was drunk, I don't remember, and now it's I was just trying to help. No one's gonna believe me.

Abigail: I do. I believe you.

Chad: I'm here for three reasons, okay? To tell you I didn't do it, to say good-bye to you, and to tell you I love you.

Abigail: No.

Chad: Yes. I love you and I always will.

Abigail: No, Chad, that's not what I'm talking about. I meant, no, you are not saying good-bye. You are not running away. If you do that, then no one's gonna believe in you. You know what you're gonna do? You're gonna go to the police and you're gonna tell them every single thing that you know. You're gonna tell them that you think you were drugged. You're gonna tell them that you saw Clyde Weston at the bar.

Chad: Those are just excuses. I can't prove anything.

Abigail: That's their job.

Chad: Damn it, Abby, you know better than anyone in the world how I lie. Marlena Evans says I attacked her, and I say, no, actually I saved her life. What're the cops gonna do? Oh, now we see. Thank you, Chad DiMera. Have a good day.

Abigail: Stop it! Stop feeling sorry for yourself. We don't have a lot of time here and we need to think about this.

Chad: I love you.

Abigail: Stop, Chad, damn it. Listen to me. You have actually seen the murderer. You need to remember everything. You need to remember what he looked like. You need to remember how tall he was.

Chad: He was wearing all black and he had a mask on. He slammed me into the door and ran out. I don't know squat about the guy, all right? You were right about one thing. We don't have any time. They are coming after me, all right? They're setting up roadblocks as we speak. I have to go.

Abigail: No! No. No, that is exactly the wrong choice.

Ben: Look, I know you want them to arrest DiMera. That doesn't mean it's gonna happen.

Clyde: Then how come they put an APB out on him?

Ben: What? How do you know that?

Clyde: Who cares how I know? They're after him. Something else has happened. It's all an end game now.

Ben: Abigail agreed to go away with me. She chose that she wants a future with me and not Chad.

Clyde: Well, that's a smart choice... since a future with him means about an hour a week in the conjugal trailer in the prison yard.

Ben: Dad, this isn't funny!

Clyde: All right, I know. I'm sorry. I'm a jerk. But the news is you've won. It's time to start living happily ever after.

Ben: You're right. The only place Abigail and I are going is our beautiful new home. In Salem.

Daniel: Agreed. I will tell you the minute john arrives. But you're gonna be safe. No one is gonna let anything happen to you.

Marlena: I know.

Daniel: They will find Chad. This nightmare will come to an end.

Marlena: Thank God.

Daniel: Take a deep breath. You close your eyes, and you get some sleep. There you go.

Chad: I don't want you involved.

Abigail: I am involved, Chad. I just left my fiancÚ in the middle of the night to come see you here at the dock. So I am involved. If someone walked by right now they would know that this isn't a study date, so we need to get the hell out of here.

Chad: Don't--no, no, no. You're not coming with me.

Abigail: [Scoffs] No, you are not leaving Salem. If you try... I will turn you in. I got you in a corner. I'm calling the shots. You can thank me later. Fact.

Marlena: [Gasps] Oh... oh, it's you. [Crying] Thank God.

Abigail: This is the place my dad hid when he came back to town.

Chad: Are you sure no one knows about this place?

Abigail: Yeah, I'm sure. So you will be safe here. You'll have some time to figure out a way to prove you're innocent.

Chad: Abby, thank you. Will you, uh... you promise me something? Promise me that you're never gonna come back here.

Abigail: I won't be coming back, Chad. I won't be coming back because Ben and I have decided that we're leaving town tomorrow. So this is good-bye.

Chad: Okay.

Jennifer: Okay. So I don't get to cry at your wedding. Press your bouquet and put it in a book. But you're gonna be safe, baby. And once Clyde Weston is in jail... where he belongs, you'll have Ben to protect you until I...

The APB was issued late this evening. Salem police confirmed that Chad DiMera is wanted for the murders of Serena mason and Paige Larson. And also for the attack on Dr. Marlena Evans this evening at university hospital.

Ben: [Sighs]
